*coughs* that's not entirely true haha. I work off my board...well $150 of it. I clean my horses pasture, clean the stalls, the arena, the barn (both barns) and occasionally feed/water all the horses in the morning.
I don't mind doing the chores...I'm happy just to be around horses. If I could spend all day, just at the barn...not riding, but just working...I'd be happy. On Thursday I spent a good 2 hours just sitting in the pasture with a 5 year old Paint...sitting next to him and petting him. He even rested his head on my lap...it was soo cute haha
